LAUNCH OF THE COMMONWEALTH ACADEMIES OF SCIENCE CONSENSUS STATEMENT ON CLIMATE CHANGE, BIODIVERSITY AND SUSTAINABLE ENERGY
The Royal Society of Canada has joined science academies and societies from around the world to support the Commonwealth Heads of Government in benefitting from the best available science on climate change, biodiversity and sustainable energy.
The climate crisis remains important despite the urgent focus on the current pandemic and, as governments begin to consider how to handle economic recovery, this statement provides an opportunity to highlight the importance of ensuring a collaborative and environmentally sustainable economic recovery from the current pandemic.
“This statement articulates the common purpose of science academies throughout the Commonwealth to take meaningful steps to contribute to a better future for all of humanity,” said RSC International Secretary Dr. R. Paul Young.
